REVIEWS

We enjoyed our experience at Podere Erica. The villa was as described and not only beautiful, but immaculately maintained. The arrangements for the grocery delivery and the welcome snacks and arrival dinner were perfect and enabled us to settle in on our first night with no discomfort. The extra attention to the driving directions were perfect and everyone found the Podere with little or no problem which made everyone happy after long journeys from other parts of Italy and the USA. The only issue that we all agreed on is that Vanessa was quite overwhelmed with laundry and barely able to finish from day to day. This was in no way her fault, but the Italian washers and dryers are not up to the hard use with so many towels and sheets. My brother-in-law’s daughter has a bed and breakfast in the Piedmonte region of Italy. She has recently engaged a commercial laundry service to do the sheets and towels and this has been very successful in easing the work load for all concerned. We would love to return and enjoy another week at Podere Erica in the future!
